Hello, September.

Let's recap, like, the whole summer:

1. Graduated! I'm a Master, no big. (But you guys knew that.)

2. Got a job! I work for a not-for-profit organization that offers homeschooling and distance learning courses. Everyone who works there is amazing. If you've ever considered homeschooling (or returning to school as a mature student) and would like course material AND a tutor who emails with you all the time, I wholeheartedly recommend this place (we'll have our new website up soon. It will be totally hot). Also, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, whatever, everywhere. Everywhere!

3. Adjusted my antidepressants! Thank jeezus. I can tell I need to readjust when I basically sound like Rust Cohle every time I open my mouth. Hashtag nihilism.

4. Decided I was going to dress like an adult! I gave away half my clothes and am only buying affordable versions of things that Robin Wright (a la Claire Underwood) or Gillian Anderson would wear. I'm slowly investing in makeup and have thrown away all that was like 10+ years old, because that's gross. My new thing (now that I have a job, ooh-a! ooh-a!) is to research makeup on blogs like The Beauty Department and, my current favorite, XO Vain, and then go into Boots after my Tuesday or Wednesday work meeting, and buy a new little thing. Today I got an eye shadow palette in some sultry neutral colors, and some subtly orange lipstick. Ooooh yes.

4. Took this picture of Mulder! Yesterday!
 Let's face it, this is the most impressive thing I've done all summer.
